- What do I need to take this class?
You will need access to a computer and YouTube. A recent Windows, Mac OS or Linux based machine will work fine.
- Do I need to be available during a certain hour of the day to watch the course?
The course is self-paced with weekly chapter releases. The course will be broken down into short video segments with periodic assessments to check on your progress and chapter assignments.
- How does the grading work?
You will receive a final grade but the grade won't be on your course completion confirmation. To receive a certificate of completion, you will need to achieve 65% on graded material. There are two different types of assessments within the course: quizzes and labs. Quizzes don't count toward your grade but will help you check your understanding. The assignments will be graded. Unfortunately, due to a large number of students and in the interest of fairness, late assignments cannot be accepted.
- Will I be able to get help?
We will be providing online forums where students can help each other. In addition, the instructor(s), teaching assistants and other MongoDB employees will monitor the forums and try to help. Often the fastest answer comes from another student.
